Not long ago I bought a TC 54 Cal muzzleloader. It is a side lock with no 11 ignition. It has an octigon barrel and a set trigger. It is stamped Thompson center and 54 Cal but that's it. It's been used but a clean rifle. Minor blueing wear near the muzzle and a few minor marks in the stock. I gave $100 for it. My question is what all models did TC offer in 54 CAL. I Originally thought it was a Renegade but it doesn't actually say that.

Thanks

After posting I realize the hawken has the brass patch holder on the stock. Mine does not. It looks just like a renegade but does not give a specific name on the barrel

You may have a rifle with an aftermarket barrel, unless it's rollmarked with all the standard T/C script.

Early Renegades didn't have 'Renegade' stamped on the barrel, later ones did.

Here's my .54 Renegade.

Pre warning renegade is my guess

You stole it

I would also guess that it is a pre warning Renegade. The basic differences between the Hawken and Renegade are the Hawken has brass furniture, a nose cap, and the barrel is usually 28". The Renegade is usually iron or blued furniture, no nose cap, and usually a 26" barrel.

And like Stiles said, you stole it!

It's not just the furniture. It's also a completely different stock.

My Hawken.
